Abstract: An interesting generalization of the familiar $ q$-extension of the Pfaff-Saalschütz theorem is proved and is applied, for example, to derive a reduction formula for a certain double $ q$-series. The main theorem (asserting the symmetry in $ n$ and $ N$ of a function $ f(n,N)$ defined in terms of an $ n$-balanced basic (or $ q{\text{ - }}$-) hypergeometric $ _3{\Phi _2}$ series by equation (8)) is essentially a $ q$-extension of Sheppard's transformation.
